little indignant that the texas court had drawn interim plans that departed from the legislatively enacted plans. and especially because texas was presented this as a really dramatic departure what had been enacted even if that wasn't true on the facts. but when we got to the day of argument, i sensed a very different dynamic among the justices and it seemed that maybe by the time the briefing was done they might have been realizing that there were some pretty serious things wrong with the texas plans. and when chief justice roberts said to the texas request put in the legislative plans we'll just sort it all out later, that chief justice roberts took the initiative to say these plans are not precleared. we need to get some kind of feedback here on preclearance. i had the sense that maybe there was an implicit recognition that the shifting of the burden of proof was important for the reasons we had in front of us that day. >> this is a question that i think comes out of joshua's comments maybe to you, nina, which is joshua's point is we would not design section 5 the way it was des

they have to take the texas plan and you have to say you can't include that. which does change the burden. then i wonder if that affects, you know, that beginning of the death by a thousand cuts for section 5 or do you think it would potentially contribute to things being strengthened or something else? >> yes and no. it's not the death. i think it's, you know, with respect to texas voting rights and texas litigation it's really the whole story why we need section 5. i mean, you know, gets a little complicated can timing sometimes. but since texas became covered in 1975, it's had one or more e redistributing plans and it's part of the rules to prevent discrimination. i don't think there's a majority on the supreme court to take that away from us because it's been so vital and so important. and we have a 2006 decision which found the marks of intentional discrimination in the last round of redistributing. we have a good case this time on intentional discrimination as well. so i'm not the doom and gloom person on section 5 that you'll hear a lot of people. i mean, i walked out of the

. partisanship? not so much. i don't agree. let's talk about texas. here is my position. republican versus democrat. outmoded thinking. this is not a reflection of texas. this will become vestigial everywhere else. i think where the real issue is and where people need to be paying attention is on latino population growth and latino political mobilization and the challenges of incumbents to both political parties and leadership. let's start with context. this is latino population growth between 2000 and 2010. it is very similar to la tino growth from 2000. green is african-american. yellow is other non-hispanic. the smallest growth is white alone, not hispanic. we call anglos in texas. if you combine both decades, we have not gained a seat, anglos have grown by 1.1 million in texas. let's start from there. you will see from the west which is 16. overpopulated by 16,000. big west texas is 23. the love of my life and the subject of litigation, overpopulated by over 150,000. district 20, over by 13,000. 28, out of loredo, 153,000. then corpus christi to brownsville, texas. overpopulated by 43,

new law in texas that blocks people from voting unless they show documentation you never had to show before. the justice department said the state's data showed that $600,000 to 800,000 people would be blocked from voting by the new law. a recent steady found people who do have the new id you have to show to vote in texas, nearly one in five of those legal voters might be blocked from voting, too, because their address on their voter registration didn't match the address on their id. that would mean potentially millions of people would be blocked from voting in texas. but in terms of who does and who don't have this new documentation texas wants you to show in order to vote, texas data shows hispanic texans were much more likely than non-hispanics to not have the new id. supposedly free id for voting would in fact cost a minimum of $22 in order to purchase the documentation to get said id. so that would be a $22 poll tax to vote in texas for some people. texas republicans considered making the whole process of getting the id free and that would get rid of the poll tax problem. texas
